Life on the Deckle Edge

Some Novel Good News for Some Writing Buds!

Bottom: Janice Hardy and Robyn celebrate Janice's new guide, PLANNING YOUR NOVEL


Iím feshly back from our SCBWI Southern Breeze Springmingle in Atlanta, and it was wonderful! (I may have moved, but I lobbied to remain a Breezer!) You can read a great recap on author and illustrator Elizabeth Dulembaís blog, here.



Speaking of Elizabeth, weíve been riding these Southern Breezes together a long time, even sharing a critique group a few years ago. Thatís why I was particularly excited that at our conference book launch on Saturday, e presented her FIRST NOVEL fully fledged. Itís an environmental story which sheís poured years (and her heart) into, and itís called A BIRD ON WATER STREET (A SIBA Okra Pick!). It sold out at the conference bookstore.



Whatís that? Oh - I hear you whispering, ďIíve always wanted to write a novel, but I donít know where to begin.Ē Well, speak up and take heart: another dear author friend, fellow Breezer and amazing blogger Janice Hardy had a hot-off-the-press book to share at the signing party. Itís called PLANNING YOUR NOVEL: IDEAS AND STRUCTURE, and itís a treasure of practical tips gleaned from her years blogging about fiction writing and nurturing emerging writers. In fact, itís Book One in her planned ďFoundations of FictionĒ series. Check it out, and learn about Janiceís other books, here.

Now, Gotta Run - my to-be-read stack is calling.

Happy Reading and Writing!
